Fingerstyle Masters Weekend


About the 2019 Fingerstyle Masters Weekend:
WTIP North Shore Community Radio will host the return of the Fingerstyle Masters Weekend April 19 and 20, 2019. Please note the event is being held a new location: Cascade Lodge on Highway 61 south of Grand Marais. Local musician Gordon Thorne welcomes back Minnesota guitarist Phil Heywood and Wisconsin fiddler Randy Sabien. The weekend featured performances both Friday and Saturday night, as well as guitar and fiddle workshops during the day Saturday.
Everyone is welcome to attend any or all of the events as part of the Fingerstyle Masters Weekend. Funding for this event is supported in part by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, and proceeds from the event support WTIP's programming.
